February 9, 2016 “The wind blows where it wishes and you hear the sound of it, but do not know where it comes from and where it is going; so is everyone who is born of the Spirit.” John 3.8 —————> BE UNPREDICTABLE Children, Children have this down….for the most part.

A leader of the leaders in fact, yet he came to Jesus at night, as … [Read more...] about Be Unpredictable
02.08.2016 QUESTION EVERYTHING I am a big fan of questioning it all. Of asking WHY to everything we find ourselves doing in LIFE. I am not one to just go with the flow and do what everyone else seems to be doing. I guess in a lot of ways I am a little weird… but actually I am ok with that. I would rather BE me, even if that means being a little different than everyone else. Sometimes this makes me the coolest guy at the party, other times I feel like I am the weirdest guy in … [Read more...] about WHY

February 6, 2016 all you have are excuses (time to DREAM AGAIN) This blog is not really about travel at all. It is about LIFE and choosing a journey that is truly yours. One that is not your parents, or the societal norm set by someone else for your life. There is not one right path to take. Believe me I have met some people old in age who did what they were suppose to do in life and they are not happy. Yes “happy” is a very relative word/concept but the point is — DO NOT SETTLE. Do … [Read more...] about all you have are excuses
February 5, 2016 CLIMB the LADDER — PURPOSE This basically picked up where yesterday’s blog left off. SEASONS— I see life in seasons. At some point I want to write a book about each decade of life. For me each one was marked by different things. Childhood. Foundations, family, sports, learning to ride a bike…. and crashing such bike, etc. The early years of adolescence. Transition into teen hood. More identity shaping, learning, etc. Twenties. College, traveling, … [Read more...] about CLIMB the LADDER — PURPOSE
February 3, 2016 TRAVEL Travel is a choice. Often people think it is unattainable, or way too expensive. I don’t think anything is unattainable anymore. I really don’t. Yet, sometimes I do. Sometimes it is hard for me to see the “normal” things in life as attainable. Like buying a house in Southern California in this current reality market. But lately even my thinking on this is changing and I am beginning to see the dream of a house as something that is attainable. “You spend … [Read more...] about the unattainable life
02.03.2016 Today I painted a tree. I like trees. Maybe it is the way they move, they flow, they sway in the wind, sometimes they bend, and even break. Trees are outside, drawing us to look up, to breath, to remember that we are small. I climbed trees a little as a kid, but it wasn’t my main thing, some kids couldn’t get enough of it. climbing to the point of no return even falling out and breaking or bruising. I enjoy root systems going in all directions the strength of each … [Read more...] about Today I painted a tree.
